Subchapter 005 : Bylaws(Cite as: 24 App. V.S.A. ch. 215, § 502)
§ 502. Fines for violations of bylaws and ordinances
The Village may impose a fine or forfeiture not exceeding $100.00 for the violation of any bylaw or ordinance. The penalty may be recovered in an action on the case upon this statute, in the name of the Village, in which action it shall be sufficient to declare generally that the defendant is guilty of violation of a certain bylaw, naming it generally, and under that declaration the special matter may be given in evidence. But nothing contained in this section shall be so construed as to prevent the Village from having such other and further relief as it may be entitled by law to compel a compliance with the bylaws and ordinances of the Village. (Amended 2023, No. 6, § 303, eff. July 1, 2023.)
